Honda has yanked the punchy 2.0-liter engine from the beloved Civic Type R, and is offering it up to those looking for a motor transplant. This marks the first time that - like the vehicle itself - the engine will be offered in the US. If you've always wanted to give your Honda a bit more oomph, there's a new crate engine for you. This hi-po four-banger puts out 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

If this doesn't fit into a 1992 Civic hatchback shell, I will make it fit. Previously, the automaker has offered crate versions of Type R engines in Europe and Asia, but this marks the first time one is available in the U.S. - just like the Civic Type R itself, in fact.

It'll be offered through the Honda Racing Line program, in fact, which already has a wide range of parts and accessories for people building everything from karts up.

In crate engine form, the Civic Type R's turbo four will make the same 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque it makes in the road auto.

The 306-horsepower 2.0L K20C1 engine that powers the Civic Type R is now available to US grassroots and professional racers for verified, closed-course racing applications through the HPD Honda Racing Line program. This Honda engine doesn't quite match it on power, of course, but it's a lot more affordable.

This isn't the first time Honda's offered a Type R crate engine.

The engine, designated K20C1, is a turbocharged and intercooled beast that may be a far cry from the high-revving naturally aspirated VTEC motors of years past, but makes the new Civic Type R one of the quickest and baddest front-wheel drive cars on the planet.

To be eligible to purchase a Type R engine, you have to be a part of the company's HPD Honda Racing Line grassroots support program.
